I always add metadata to my photos.

Am I the only one?

I noticed that NGA does not display any metadata?

All the EXIF data is stripped upon upload to preserve privacy. When you upload a photo to the site, you have the option of adding a caption as well as the date and location it was taken. I usually put in an approximate date and location (primarily so that others know what region it was in and at what time of year), but it's really up to the owner of the photo(s) to do so if they wish to.

Some photo editors require metadata. Fine, give it to them. Otherwise I tell all my photo students that when sharing a photo with your roommate, Aunt Martha, eBay, any on-line site, remove the EXIF and metadata first. Privacy and security. No one needs to know how old your picture is, where it was taken, what camera you use and the serial number of it. Gene

I think some of us (me) use "EXIF" and "metadata" as synomyms. What's the difference?

They are 2 different fields. EXIF data is embedded automatically by the camera. You can choose not to transfer all that data when you make a copy of the image. Metadata field will be blank. You can write your name, address, title of the pix, the word copyright, and other things in it. Then that info becomes part of the pix. Editors like it if you put your name there in case this one individual pix gets "lost." Put in the wrong folder. Gene
